Where should my husband eat in Pleasanton?
My husband is in Pleasanton on business....he and his buddies are trying to do a "no chain" week.....;where should they eat??
There are a lot of non chain spots that are pretty decent.
For lunch, here are some good spots. Check out this thread. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/365008
For dinner, I like Cafe Esin in San Ramon. Very good CA Meditrean influenced dining with great desserts. I was just there for lunch last week and it really is a nice spot. I also like Blue Agave in downtown Pleasanton on Main Street. There are a number of other places down there but I'm not as familiar with them. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/322536
For burgers, he might like The Hopyard. It's a brew pub. Order your burgers rare even if you don't like 'em that way, cause they tend to over cook. But it can be a nice alternative to the fancier dining spots.
